 My, what big hands you have. 

I will let you all decide whether your eyes are rendered useless for the rest of the day, or if you are now more invigorated than if you had chased a 5-Hour with a Red Bull. 

ESPN's Carrie Kreiswirth reports the covers of the upcoming issue will feature six separate athletes: Rob Gronkowski, Jose Bautista, Tyson Chandler, Daniela Hantuchova, Candace Parker and Ronda Rousey.

Many were taken aback by the pronounced booty of Tyson Chandler and his recently reported cover. The Gronk cover is just as "in-your-face."

And really, there is no more "Gronk being Gronk" pose than this one.

The man who lives as if he is on an amusement park ride takes very little seriously, which is part of his unrelenting bro charm.

According to the report, you can get your Body Issue on Friday. You'll have to decide for yourself which special cover floats your boat enough to rip the magazine from newsstands.
